"Isn't he supposed to be the good guy?" The perfect video to make you smile and remind you why going to the movies is such an unforgettable experience. While this was actually first put together last summer, it just ended up online last week, and it's worth watching (again) even if you have already seen it before. Covering everything from The Majestic to Grease to Annie Hall to Cinema Paradiso to Inglourious Basterds to The Blob to Midnight Cowboy to Bonnie & Clyde to True Romance, this "Cinema Within Cinema" video is a super-cut collection of the scenes that take place in movie theaters (or cinemas) in movies. Sit back, relax...
Thanks to The Film Stage for the tip. Visit Vimeo for more info on this. Edited together by Eusebio Poveda for Slacktory during the summer of 2013, featuring 139 clips from 93 different films. Can you name them all? If not, there's a full list of all the movies in the Vimeo description for the video. This video just goes to show there are so many great scenes set in movie theaters (from Gremlins to Son of Rambow and beyond) but one of my all-time favorite movie-theater-movies is, of course, Cinema Paradiso. Tarantino always has excellent cinema scenes, including plenty in Inglourious Basterds. A wonderful video for movie-lovers.
